Watch HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION (2002) Full Film Free Now on PLUTO TV + Workprint, Reviews

Halloween: Resurrection is a 2002 American slasher film directed by Rick Rosenthal, who had also directed Halloween II in 1981. Larry Brand and Sean Hood devised the screenplay. The film is a direct sequel to Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later and the eighth installment overall in the Halloween franchise. It stars Busta Rhymes, Bianca Kajlich, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Ryan Merriman, Sean Patrick Thomas, Tyra Banks and Jamie Lee Curtis, with Brad Loree as the primary villain Michael Myers. This was the final installment of the H20 timeline of the Halloween franchise, which had just been rebooted with the previous film in 1998, before it was rebooted again in 2007 and again in 2018. The film follows Myers continuing his murderous rampage in his hometown of Haddonfield when his childhood house is used for a live internet horror show.

IMDb.com SYNOSPIS: Three years after he last terrorized his sister, Michael Myers confronts her again, before traveling to Haddonfield to deal with the cast and crew of a reality show which is being broadcast from his old home.

IMDb.com STORYLINE: Serial Killer Michael Myers is not finished with Laurie Strode, and their rivalry finally comes to an end. But is this the last we see of Myers? Freddie Harris and Nora Winston are reality programmers at DangerTainment, and are planning to send a group of 6 thrill-seeking teenagers into the childhood home of Myers. Cameras are placed all over the house and no one can get out of the house... and then Michael arrives home!

RELEASE: Halloween: Resurrection was released on this day July 12, 2002, and was critically panned, with many considering it an unnecessary sequel to Halloween H20. Many critics have deemed it to be one of the worst films in the Halloween franchise. The film also underperformed at the box office, only grossing $37.6 million worldwide against a $15 million budget. Although another sequel was planned to follow Resurrection, the next film in the franchise became Halloween, a 2007 remake directed by Rob Zombie.

MUSIC: The score for Halloween: Resurrection was composed by Danny Lux. The score incorporates electro-acoustic instrumentation with roots in synthesizer-heavy scores of the early 1980s. The film also features several rap and hip-hop songs. In direct contrast to general critical reviews of the film, some assessments of its sound and theme music have been praising. For example, critic Steve Newton complimented the film's "creepy" and "unsettling" revival of the original iconic theme, while criticizing the film itself, as well as the rap tracks included.

HOME MEDIA: Halloween: Resurrection was released on VHS and DVD on December 10, 2002, which includes a web cam special using as found footage featuring the film's characters are set inside of Michael Myers' haunted house with alternate and deleted scenes...read more at wikipedia.org

JACK-O's REVIEW: When I first watched this I hated what they did with Laurie Strode in the begining and also hated they changed the ending of H20 but I acutally liked the rest of the film. Though at first I found Busta Ryhmes and Tyra Banks cringy I now enjoy rewatching and accept the whole film and I love that line "Trick or Treat Motha Fucka!"

A Summer Monstervison Double Feature Night:

You can't keep a good zombie down. MonsterVision offers skeptical viewers clear proof in the form of The Return of the Living Dead, a film that manages the tricky task of being both funny and scary. That's "living dead" as in Night of the Living Dead (NOTLD if you please) and "return" as in "not much to do with the first but it's a catchy title." We'll draw the connections between the two films after catching our collective breaths a bit.

Until then how about a plot synopsis? We heard you all panting and pleading, "Please please fill us in." So here ya go: It seems that a big shark, no wait. There's a second-rate boxer who wants a shot at the top -- darn, that's not it either. Ok, zombies. They return. Basically, we've got a couple of working class stiffs (haha, we made a pun) employed at a Kentucky medical supply house. Unknown to them, there are canisters of a toxic chemical stored nearby after a disastrous spill in Pittsburgh in the late 60s (remember NOTLD?). The canisters break open, causing some formerly deceased citizens to prowl around hissing, "More brains," like they own the darn place. Oh, did we mention the punks? Well, there are some, and punks being punks they thought a cemetery was a nice place to party. Perhaps, but not tonight... read more full transcript here!

Monstervision VHS cover by @trickhorrortreater:

Hold something back? Not us since we're really putting the "monster" into MonsterVision with a freaky big, super-nasty great white shark romping through Jaws 2. The film may be the offspring of a big-budget, almost-respectable smash hit but Jaws 2 doesn't skimp in the shocks and thrills department and we love it for that. To paraphrase Jean-Luc Godard, all you need for a movie is a hungry critter and some dumb townfolk.

When last we left sleepy seaside Amity, the town had been menaced by a predatory great white which was eventually defeated by the police chief, a grizzled sea captain and that guy from Mr. Holland's Opus. But since there's always more fish in the sea, we shouldn't be surprised to learn that the first film's shark was a sort of advance scout for bigger and meaner things. Roy Schneider is back as the police chief, still having to deal with a mayor (Murray Hamilton again) who refuses to close down the beach, apparently having slept through the first film. The shark's tougher, the chief's got bigger guns and there's a super phat, def, chillin' scene involving a helicopter. We're not being deliberately vague on the story, it's just that Jaws 2's austere string of shark attacks and the men who stop them borders on non-narrative experimental film. Hey, who says MonsterVision lacks aesthetic sensibilities?...read more full transcript here!
